The property to be vacated is not currently used for public access and is not needed for future public access. Utility easements shall remain along the adjacent property lines for existing and/or required utility service(s) for this property.
By a vote of 7 to 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.
1. Approve the request to vacate the portions of the drainage and utility easements in the referenced subdivision.
2. Other action the Commission may deem appropriate.
No fiscal impact is anticipated as a result of the vacation of these easements. .
